Show number two is...

Blowin' in the Wind

As relevant today as it was when staged three year's ago, Blowin' in the Wind portrays protest, upheaval and discord – ultimately leading to hope, unity and shared optimism: Chickenshed unveils a songbook musical featuring blues, gospel, folk and more. With a narrative thread linking protest songs and civil disobedience from the 1960s to the present day, a mirror is held up to reveal and reflect a sense of optimism that can prevail even during history’s darkest hours.

Blowin’ in the Wind is a timely celebration of those willing to raise their voices to make the world better.
